Northern Exposure Spain provides custom tours in Northern Spain catering to client specific interests. Travelers wishing to experience this unique area of Spain can do so without having to travel all over it. The company´s recently launched Northern Spain Experience tour offers a comprehensive experience all within one area.
The North offers travelers a different perspective on what many have traditionally perceived as “Spain.” Contrary to popular belief, not all of Spain is about flamenco dancing, bull fighting and paella. Bagpipes, wooden shoes and blue cheese are more like it in the North. Discerning travelers have begun to realize that this part of Spain, also commonly referred to as Green Spain, is one of the Spaniards´ best kept secrets. The area offers a very different perspective of the same country, if all the more enjoyable.
The Spanish consider “El Norte” to be the area comprised by the autonomous communities bordering the Cantabrian Sea on the north coast of Spain. These include, from west to east: Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Euskadi (Basque Country) and arguably Navarra, although this last community is not actually on the Cantabrian Sea. The lush mountainous landscapes of Green Spain, the Cantabrian Sea, as well as unique cultures and history with ancestral differences from the rest of Spain are commonalities between the regions of this part of Spain. Wonderful cuisine with a pantry stocked from the local pastures, gardens, forests and sea round out the offering.
The travel industry has heard rumblings of Northern Spain but has only more recently begun to realize its importance as a travel destination. San Sebastian, Bilbao and Santiago are all on the travel radar by now, but Cantabria remains largely undiscovered. Travelers go to Galicia to experience the Camino de Santiago and eat the wonderful seafood. Others head to Asturias to hike in the Picos de Europa, drink cider and eat blue cheese. The Basque country offers the Guggenheim museum and wonderful cuisine, including Michelin star restaurants. This tour allows travelers to avoid cumbersome journeys within Spain and the wasted travel time that entails. It captures the essence of Northern Spain all within a reduced area: in and around Cantabria, at the very heart of Green Spain.
“This tour offers travelers the opportunity to experience Northern Spain on a very local level without having to hop around the country to do so,” pointed out Northern Exposure Spain´s Chief Experience Officer (CEO), Charles Schwalbe Garcia-Lago. “Cantabria is the hidden gem of the North, with Michelin star cuisine, the historic Camino de Santiago and UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the oldest cave art in the world and the Biosphere reserve of the Picos de Europa National Park. Our unique culture, with distinctive local customs and traditions, always surprises our clients. The tour provides an in depth experience of the North, impossible to recreate on your own and all within one destination.”
